What are we measuring?
This measure tracks the percentage of code violation re-inspections performed within three business days. Once a violation has been recorded and the property owner notified either in person or by mail, the owner has three days to comply before a citation is issued. A re-inspection is conducted after three days to determine whether the owner has complied.
Why are we measuring it?
The goal of the Code Enforcement Division is to re-inspect properties three days following the notification of violation in order to verify that the owner has complied within the 3-day limit. Delays in re-inspections can mean that violations may go without correction with possible threats to the health and safety of the public or to the environment.
How are we doing?
The percentage of violations re-inspected in three days has remained under 50 percent over the past three years, briefly dropping below 30 percent in 2015. Re-inspections can often be delayed for reasons beyond the inspectors control. For example, lack of physical access to the property or the presence of dogs can create delays in re-inspections.
